What template for this edit? Pattyman 18:06, 8 January 2011 (UTC)

The Side Games template. It uses PNG and the same format as the one I tried to move and there's a bunch of Pokémon that use the field moves, so the template would have to be changed first and then the files moved. --P S Yライダー 18:33, 8 January 2011 (UTC)
How can the template get changed? Pattyman 19:14, 8 January 2011 (UTC)
It's protected right now, so I left a message on the talk page requesting a change, so hopefully an admin will notice. If not, I'll bring it up on the forums or something. Until then, they'll have to stay as the PNGs, but they can still be tagged with the move template since they will be changed after the template itself is changed. --P S Yライダー 19:21, 8 January 2011 (UTC)
Thanks. :) Pattyman 19:25, 8 January 2011 (UTC)
Yep, no problem. :D --P S Yライダー 19:28, 8 January 2011 (UTC)

File:1997 GS 04.gif

You deleted it for being unused, but it is being used on Johto Route 35. --SnorlaxMonster 10:24, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

I had uploaded a png of the file, so yeah. D; --P S Yライダー 13:18, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

Wrong move

Actually, the map showed the location of ACTUAL Fairchild Island (as the official map shows it), the Kabuto Island is the small island south of it. Please move it back. The map was okay, everything else was wrong. --Maxim 21:27, 1 February 2011 (UTC)

I was talking just about the map, the picture should have been moved. Sorry for the misunderstanding. The map shows Fairchild Island, the anime picture shows Kabuto Island. --Maxim 21:51, 1 February 2011 (UTC)


I was thinking if you replace the jpg of Mackenzie's father on his page to the png image. The same applies to replacing the jpgs on the outfits page with these three images. Pattyman 03:27, 21 March 2011 (UTC)

Done. --P S Yライダー 04:19, 21 March 2011 (UTC)


This user, Masatoshi, has mentioned some stuff on my talkpage that didn't make sense about the anime images. Pattyman 18:22, 6 April 2011 (UTC)

What exactly do you need clarified per chance? --P S Yライダー 19:30, 6 April 2011 (UTC)
I wanted to know if it is necessary to use proper grammar on most filenames as he mentioned that this image was fine as is (even with the apostrophe). Pattyman 19:50, 6 April 2011 (UTC)
He also mentioned about images being used on userpages (not the personal images, the regular ones). Pattyman 19:51, 6 April 2011 (UTC)
I'm not really sure on the apostrophe, I can be sure of that, but a filename Shouldn't Really Have The First Letter In Uppercase, I feel that the file is fine as it is, we discussed it with Jello, and yes; It's really necessary for us to know what the file is about, we can't upload for example, an image of Ash striking his pose for getting the first badge and instead receive something like ash vadge.jpg, have fun trying to find the image you're looking for. And as for the second one, if the file is really needed for the person, then it should be kept, granted, Cassidy might have not been the brightest example. Masatoshitalk 20:47, 6 April 2011 (UTC)
Except in the cases of talk pages, files being used on Bulbapedia (INCLUDING user pages) should not be deleted unless you can replace the image (which you can't because Bulbapedia is locked right now). Jellotalk 21:50, 6 April 2011 (UTC)

Map reversion

Ummm... why?--immewnitythemew 14:17, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

Those were ugly and scrunched. --P S Yライダー 16:49, 9 April 2011 (UTC)
And Nuvema Town? It's the exact same source as the other one, just without the text. The original one had the image enlarged a bit.--immewnitythemew 17:50, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

DW art

Why? Their under 1280px. So why? Jello even wants those!—★Pika3323 19:46, 10 April 2011 (UTC)

Did you even read what she said? High quality? Yes. More than 1,000 x 1,000? No. Some of those images you uploaded were above that. It would be better to stay under 1000 x 1000. Plus my images are still high quality, thanks. --P S Yライダー 19:52, 10 April 2011 (UTC)
She said "under 1280px" not "1000px"—★Pika3323 19:54, 10 April 2011 (UTC)
How about this? My new temporary limit is 800px. Is that good?—★Pika3323 22:10, 10 April 2011 (UTC)
I use 1000 x 1000 as an example. Artwork usually, if at all, doesn't come in perfect squares. It's like that 300 x 250 or similar. While 1280 is one part, occasionally the other side can go above it. As such I resized it to fit below it, better safe than sorry, especially because of the larger ones are generally not really fairuse. Your recent ones as under 1000 x 1000 are fine, for my preferences anyways. --P S Yライダー 23:55, 10 April 2011 (UTC)
That's why you re-size the longer side to 1280, that way the other side is smaller than 1280, that's what I did with the others.—★Pika3323 00:02, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
Jello told me to do it and was fine with it under 1000 x 1000. Deal with it. --P S Yライダー 00:06, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
I am dealing with it, I'm just telling you that...—★Pika3323 00:08, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
Glad we're at an understanding, now let's get back to work. Jellotalk 02:37, 11 April 2011 (UTC)

Manga images

Where can you get those clear manga images as in this one? Pattyman 20:40, 15 April 2011 (UTC)

I don't know, I don't upload manga images. That's a question for Ataro. --P S Yライダー 21:31, 15 April 2011 (UTC)

Welcome template

You might want to fix the welcome template as it says that were allowed to have some personal images. Pattyman 19:15, 16 May 2011 (UTC)

Special thanks to Jello for fixing it. Pattyman 00:49, 17 May 2011 (UTC)

Image uploading?

I just uploaded an image of Gary's Umbreon using Sand-Attack, and it says that there's no file that exists. I dunno whether to upload it again or not. Should I? Littlmiget123 19:54, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

Sorry for the late reply, but no. Sometimes the server doesn't register images even when they are uploaded. Usually a hard refresh or purge should make it reappear. --P S Yライダー 20:34, 13 June 2011 (UTC)
Not a problem. I noticed that it did reappear after a while of me uploading it. Thanks for the response. :) Littlmiget123 20:49, 13 June 2011 (UTC)


Do you now why my image of the regional birds is deleted? --Nazirbashir 14:52, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

anime images

What is the minimum size allowed for anime images? Pattyman 04:38, 27 June 2011 (UTC)

Technically I don't suppose there is one, just as long as it's viewable. But nothing like 64 x 64 or something. Probably around 100 x 100. But try not to make them that small. --P S Yライダー 05:17, 27 June 2011 (UTC)
I thought it was 320 x 240 as the quality is better. Pattyman 12:00, 27 June 2011 (UTC)
320x240 is what Filb.de gives us and is actually good, so that pretty much could be considered a limit, but if it's smaller than that, but still high quality, I wouldn't complain. --P S Yライダー 15:19, 27 June 2011 (UTC)

Hippopotas Sand-Attack

I uploaded a picture of Hippopotas using Sand-Attack a while ago, maybe a month ago, and it isn't showing up. Do you know why? Littlmiget123 01:09, 9 July 2011 (UTC)

I'm not quite sure myself. It's probably a server screw up. If you have the image still, try uploading over it, but I really don't know why. --P S Yライダー 01:13, 9 July 2011 (UTC)
Unfortunetly, I deleted the image because it had shown up on here when I uploaded it. I can't get another version of it either. >-< Sorry. ^-^' Littlmiget123 01:19, 9 July 2011 (UTC)


My apologies, I didn't know you reverted it already. I was about to revert it, the power went off for few mins. I reverted it asap when it came back but didn't know you did it already. So, I am sorry for that. ♫♪エイディニズ♪♫ 16:53, 14 July 2011 (UTC)

Nah, it's fine. It happens. I won't hold it against you. --P S Yライダー 16:55, 14 July 2011 (UTC)

Stuff pointed out

On the archives FAQ, the userspace limit rule needs to be changed to one edit per day under the section called User related. Also, for the BW head images under the Summary section, the episode names are not listed for BW011 - BW016 (Ex.: for Summary, it says BW011 instead of Here Comes the Trubbish Squad.) I placed an example to be more clear. Pattyman 16:08, 30 July 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know, I'll change it ASAP, and as for the images, they're protected and I'm not on for long, so I'll change them when I get back or unless another admin sees it. Thank you. Cheers. --P S Yライダー 21:59, 30 July 2011 (UTC)
Not a problem. Pattyman 00:04, 31 July 2011 (UTC)

Battrio images

With regards to the Black Thunder - White Fire images, are you manually upscaling the images to 255x255? Since the official website seems to have adopted a new 200x200 standard I think it may be best to keep it that way, as the images are nice and crisp. Also with the promo images, I made a bit of a late decision to start naming them <name>_P_<promotion>, as I noticed the official website has missed a few that would otherwise disrupt the numbering order. I am also asking Umeko if she can send me the images she has from before the site changed everything - that includes pucks from expansions 5-7, which we are currently missing. Nuva-kal 18:29, 30 July 2011 (UTC)

Yeah I did. I was doing them to 255 cause that's what they were before, but if it's the site doing it at 250, I'll just upload them as is. Also, that's fine as far as the name goes. I was unsure because they went from S to P. I can also upload 5-7 if Ume can't get the old ones. Thank you. Cheers. :D --P S Yライダー 21:59, 30 July 2011 (UTC)


That Dino file was only 1280 by 720px . --Kenji-girl 23:00, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

The first one was uploaded was 1440 x 810px. --P S Yライダー 23:04, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
But that one is still visible. The two that were deleted were the correct size. Is it possible to delete the first one? --Kenji-girl 23:12, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
It's probably just the Archives being weird again. I uploaded the 1280 one, so a hard refresh or purge should change it back. D: --P S Yライダー 23:15, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

Gif policy

When I read the policy about gifs not being allowed, I thought this also meant the animated images (as they were supposed to be in png form). Pattyman 22:40, 9 August 2011 (UTC)

Upload form says Gifs should be avoided, and the FAQ mentions that we use anipngs over gifs, it doesn't say that they're completely outlawed and banned forever, but if they can be replaced by anipngs, then that's fine. --P S Yライダー 15:52, 10 August 2011 (UTC)


I was thinking if you could upload a better image of File:Brock Steelix DragonBreath.png as it is too smudgy on the bottom corner and I don't want to use MSPaint to replace this one. The one that I found for replacement had a big logo on it. Pattyman 12:22, 6 September 2011 (UTC)


Hello there! I was wondering if you woudln't mind changing the name of 110Koffing OS Anime to 109Koffing OS anime?? Thank You!--LHakaLH 00:06, 19 September 2011 (UTC)


I have a question about categories, what is the requirement(s) for an anime character (non-main and non-COtD) to have their own category? I'm asking since you may have experience about this. Pattyman 15:35, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

We didn't at first, it was kind of a self made notability thing by users uploading, however, Trom and I decided that CODs must have at least 8 images and have 5 central episodes around them. So far, Stephan, Georgia, and Burgundy really only have about 1 episode each, however they have probably around enough images, so if both are met, then they can have a category outside the . --P S Yライダー 15:40, 25 September 2011 (UTC)
Outside the what? The sentence wasn't completed, just letting you know. :) Pattyman 16:33, 25 September 2011 (UTC)
Hahaha whoops. Outside the rivals category. --P S Yライダー 20:03, 25 September 2011 (UTC)


When I move an image, it is telling me to check for double and broken redirects. What are those? Pattyman 15:26, 4 October 2011 (UTC)

Double redirects are like if you moved an image to a location, but it's wrong so you move it again, leaving the first one broken because it only links to the second name, not the first, if that makes sense... --P S Yライダー 16:05, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
Probably so and one thing, there is an unaired episode head image that has not been protected yet. Just letting you know as the other ones are protected. Pattyman 03:46, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
